Heating up

June 17, 2010

We have noticed a change over in the fields this past week. Spring produce is on the wane, summer vegetables are picking up. We are bringing in the beginnings of homegrown summer squash and zucchini. Enjoy it now while it’s still a fresh idea. We all know it will be old hat in no time.

Also green and wax beans are rolling in. If you got any of the first pick Provider beans over the last few days you know what I mean when I say they are really amazing. If a green bean can be sweet, these are, and crisp and beautiful too. It is nice to see the payoff from all the work to push these crops to come earlier by covering them in the late winter.

Can’t wait to get some photos of the corn up here. It’s enjoying the early bolt of heat as well, far surpassing knee-high by even June 15th forget 4th of July.

The strawberries are slowing down. The wet weather certainly is speeding up their decline, but with the heat expected tomorrow and the next there should be a good strong last gasp.

Peas are in a state of pause. Sugar snaps are close (as ever, they seem to be taunting us a bit). The next crop of Spring have podded up and should fill up fast in the sun. Then we should continue to pick through July 4th.

Verdant. These fields are verdant. Beans in the foreground, then lettuce, zucchini, cucumbers, the crew weeding the peas, and strawberries on the horizon.

We are picking our pesticide free baby greens in the greenhouse again: arugula, lettuce, and a new spicy mustard mix. Let us know what you think of it!

Additionally, the greenhouse sale is still going on and the stand is bringing in new additions to the grocery all the time.

We are excited to introduce Clear Flour Bakery of Brookline’s bread every day. We are currently carrying a rustic loaf, and hope to expand to other selections quickly.
